This is the full 8-24-09 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
In this week’s program we take a look at the growing anger of teachers, parents and community members about how schools are funded in Chicago with Jackson Potter, a Chicago public high school teacher and a founding member of CORE (the Caucus of Rank and File Educators). We talk with Jorge Mujica of the March 10th Committee about plans for an immigrants rights march in downtown Chicago on Labor Day. We talk with Larry Spivak of the Illinois Labor History Society about plans for a Labor Day celebration in the historic Pullman neighborhood on Chicago’s Southside. And we talk with Moises Zavala of UFCW Local 881 about their plans for a week of labor rights education for immigrants Aug. 31st through Sept. 4th.
